I'm no A/C expert and just replaced pretty much the entire system with the exception of the Condensor and Evaporator. When complete, I just took it to a shop to have them evac and charge the system for me. Although the system was working great, it was working too well. It was actually icing up the entire system after about 10-15 min. and then there was zero airflow into the car. What they found was that the little $20 switch in the receiver/drier that I decided not to replace was bad and causing the Compressor to not cycle on/off as it should. So a stupid little piece that I just moved over from my old drier should have also been replaced at the time....live n learn.
Best advice I could provide is take it to a shop and have them do a quick diiagnostic of the issue for you. It may cost you an hour of Shoptime but at least you'll know and they have the tools and equipment I dont to get it done properly. GL
